I recently posted about a tantrum my son had in one scenario. Here is another scenario:
When we are dining out or doing grocery shopping with our 16 month old he doesnt like to sit still and eventually gets really mad and throws a massive fit. Again, we dont have family or friends in the area to help us, daycare cant watch him during the times we would be dining out or grocery shopping so not taking him isnt an option. Anyway he kicks, screams, if he can reach stuff he throws it, major dramatic fits. Normally we try and accomodate him by seeing if he wants a snack, a drink, does he want to be held, carried, walk, we talk to him and if all else fails we remove him from the situation and one of us will sit in the car with him while the other finishes up. I am looking for suggestions on how to deal with a tantrum other than this way. Sometimes if I am alone grocery shopping with him it isnt always easy to remove him right away so these are the times I could really use the suggestions. My first priority in these situations is good parenting, but I also want to be respectful to those around us and that too is a priority.
